(July 12, 2013) -- Three fountains on the UTSA Main Campus will flow again on weekday 8 a.m.-5 p.m., after being turned off to comply with city water restrictions.

UTSA recently requested and received a variance to the San Antonio Water System 2013 drought ordinance, which will allow the fountains to operate for a period during the day.

The popular fountains are at Biosciences Building, Applied Engineering and Technology Building, and University Center.

The Sombrilla Plaza fountain was turned on for three weeks to be evaluated for renovations and repairs before permanently returning to service. It is now turned off and was drained; a permanent turn-on date is to be determined.
